Behind the Scenes of two local community organisations responding to Covid-19
Last month we welcomed 18 fund holders for an online conversation with two leading charities in Bristol and B&NES. The Behind the Scenes event series is specially designed with our fund holders in mind.
We heard from Sado Jirde from Black South West Network and James Carlin from 3SG. Both talked passionately about their experiences of supporting their communities since the first lockdown.
Both charities received Covid response grants through us during this period
The grants helped them:
- develop new services for their communities
- assist other smaller organisations to strengthen their infrastructure
- support collaboration between local charitable organisations
- channel volunteers in support of frontline charities.
The 90 minute session included small breakout groups to allow for greater discussions and the chance for fund holders to ask questions.
Events to inspire philanthropy
Our supporters are invited to a range of events throughout the year. This is an opportunity to hear from local projects and join with other people who care about their community. It’s a great way to hear about how philanthropy can help local causes and the people they support.
Our fund holders are invited to Behind the Scenes events in Bristol, and Philanthropy in Practice events in B&NES, North Somerset and South Glos. Contact Ronnie Brown if you’d like to join with hundreds of others who’ve already set up their own charitable fund with Quartet.
“The session was a timely update and useful briefing on the bigger issues facing funders, charities and communities as the pandemic continues nearly one year on.” – Sarah Robinson, Quartet Fund Holder
